Two Men in Manhattan

Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville

Run time 84 min

A French UN delegate has disappeared into thin air, sending reporter Moreau (Melville) and hard drinking photographer Delmas (Grasset) on an assignment to find him. Their only lead is a picture of three women. Set against a smokey jazz score and featuring stunning black and white cinematography that beautifully captures the gritty streets at night, this is director Melville’s love letter to New York City and homage to the American Film Noir.
